We have developed a wavelet-based method of detecting body-movement artifacts in optical topography (OT) signals. Although OT, which is a noninvasive imaging technique for measuring hemodynamic response related to brain activation, is particularly useful for studying infants, the signals occasionally contain undesirable artifacts caused by body movements,(More)
In this paper we analyze and model upper limb motion during sanding training. The sanding training is one of resistance training for upper limbs widely performed in occupational therapy in Japan. In the future the final aims are to quantitatively evaluate the therapeutic effect of upper limb motion during the training and to develop a new rehabilitation(More)
In the future the final aims of our research are to quantitatively evaluate the therapeutic effect of upper limb motion during the training and to develop a new rehabilitation training support robot with the evaluation function. This paper presents new evaluation methods of therapeutic effect of a sanding training. The sanding training is one type of(More)
BACKGROUND To clarify the influence of hypertension and blood pressure (BP) control on thromboembolism and major hemorrhage in patients with nonvalvular atrial fibrillation, a post hoc analysis of the J-RHYTHM Registry was performed. METHODS AND RESULTS A consecutive series of outpatients with atrial fibrillation was enrolled from 158 institutions. Of(More)
We perform a full amplitude analysis of B 0 ! c 0 K þ À decays, with c 0 ! þ À or e þ e À , to constrain the spin and parity of the Zð4430Þ À. The J P ¼ 1 þ hypothesis is favored over the 0 À , 1 À , 2 À and 2 þ hypotheses at the levels of 3:4, 3:7, 4:7 and 5:1, respectively. The analysis is based on a 711 fb À1 data sample that contains 772 Â 10 6 B " B(More)
